Unable to reset password

Joining in


I am unable to reset my password as the password strength is classed as “invalid”, even when using passwords generated by a password generator. I am therefore not able to reset my password and access my virgin media account.


1. Open the MyVirginMedia app
2. Select “Broadband tv and phone”
3. Select “Forgotten … password
4. Follow the link provided in my email to the reset password page on
5. Try to choose a new password


No passwords are valid. Password strength is ”invalid” even when meeting the password criteria.


A password can be set and password for my account changed.


Hey Tward17, thank you for reaching out and a warm welcome to the community I am so sorry to hear about this.

What error is it giving you when you try and change the password?

Also I would like making the password very simple and trying to change it on Chrome this should fix it for you.

Please let us know.

Hey alby1007,

Welcome to the community and thanks for taking the time to post here on the forums. I’m sorry to hear of the issues that you’re having with your online account. I would be happy to take a further look into this for you but first I would need to confirm a few details via private message, please look out for my message and we can get started.
Kind Regards,

Hi All, and particularly Steven:

I also had this issue, where the password would be marked as invalid regardless. I've found that refreshing the page and never entering an invalid password fixed the issue - the second you click out the box for typing your password, that "state" is saved and you have to reload if it is invalid.
